Follow these three steps to get started on the design of your air piping system. Don’t forget to make use of our smart tools during the design process to help you to find the perfect pipe diameter, calculate the pressure drop or visualize your future installation.
Draw your air compressor system layout.
The starting point for designing and dimensioning your compressed air network is your complete equipment list detailing all compressed air consumers and a drawing or sketch of your floor indicating all your consumer locations.
Additionally, identify your major consumers in the network. Depending on the consumers, make the selection for your drop lines and branch lines.
Depending on the consumers, make the selection for your drop lines and branch lines.
When determining your pipe diameter, take into account your flow rate, pressure, allowed pressure drop and the total length of the network.
Make sure you use planning and calculation tools:
You need four main parts, if you work with a larger compressed air network:
